The Recruitment Process

The recruitment process can be broken down into a series of stages.  Some of the steps in those stages are the responsibility of the Office of Human Resources, while other steps are the responsibility of the Hiring Manager.  The charts in this section show an outline of the process, who is responsible for what, and an estimate of how long each step might take.

Overall, you can expect the process of bringing a new employee into your organization to take from 4 – 8 weeks.  This time frame takes into account the amount of time that it takes for the hiring manager to enter the position into careers, for HR to classify the position and to get the necessary approvals, to advertise the position, to conduct interviews, and to process the requisite documentation.  Of course, this process can be streamlined and the timeframe shortened if documentation is processed quickly and deadlines are met in an expeditious manner.
